you'll never get the
want the whole thing to yourself but you'll never get it so
you keep eating the pieces that you can get.
while there are whole hershey's bars lollipops and
reese's cups willing and ready to give their all to you you
continue to take the skittles because that's all your tongue
wants and all that your heart desires and you think that is all
you can love.
you know you're only allowed to have the red skittles. you
crave the other colors so badly and you know you should just walk
away because they'll never be offered to you but the red ones
taste so so good so you keep eating them in hopes of being able
to taste a sweet purple even though you know deep down the
chances are very low.
and The red ones designated for you will eventually run out and
you won't be allowed to have skittles at all anymore and all
the rest of the skittles you wanted so badly will fall into
someone else's mouth who was allowed to have the whole bag
for reasons you will never be able to know.
and until your red pieces are gone, you will keep on hoping and
hoping and hoping, and not be totally honest about being fine
with eating nothing but red, and you will pine, and you will go
there, and you will eat yet another red skittle just so you can
have a tiny little taste of what perfect is like, but never
it's not good. run away. find someone available. you deserve
